Subject: Info on why some apps need the fonts but others don't

I've determined why the fonts are needed by some Linux applications, but
not others.

Jon TURNEY from the Cygwin X11 project gave a very good overview:

Nomachine also had a very good explanation:

The question is then what should the default be? misc only? or 75dpi,
100dpi, and misc?

misc is 412 files at 6.80 MB (7.94 MB on disk)
75dpi is 1,897 files at 10.7 MB (15.6 MB on disk)
100dpi is 1,897 files at 12.3 MB (16.8 MB on disk)
everything else is 466 files at 12.8MB (13.8 MB on disk)

I am leaning towards default to only misc, and then having separate
options for 75dpi, 100dpi, and for everything else.
